This issue has been solved. See solution.

I'd like to understand the following as it relates to a SEP 12 GUP:

1. What product updates (not definitions) are provided by GUPs to the group members?

2. How frequently are these incremental updates provided to the clients from the GUP?

3. Where would frequency be configured for the GUP in SEPM?

GUPs can only provide content updates, not product updates.

So am I reading the following KB wrong, then?

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH198160

The last row in the table implies incremental product updates are provided by GUPs (even though the rows above mentions no product updates, which lead to the confusion), but I'm guessing that just means defs/sigs.

It's incremental updates for content, essentially meaning deltas.

GUPs cannot provide product updates...maybe in a future version of  SEP :)

GUP is only be able to provide the defintion to client. No other work with GUP.

The Group Update Provider gets content updates from the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager and locally distributes the updates to groups of clients. For each LiveUpdate Settings policy, you can configure a single Group Update Provider or multiple Group Update Providers.
